    I don't think the concept of pork not fed high omega 6 foods is nonsense. But it probably does require a very thoughtful farmer who shapes the diet quite carefully, to make the pig's tissues what...

    I like the Native Forest product in the BPA free cans a lot. But you cannot compare it to Aroy-D relative to the homogenized texture.
